Most widely held works by Dominique Visse
Giulio Cesare by George Frideric Handel( Recording )
32 editions published between 1991 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
When the most powerful man in the world meets the most desirable woman in the world sparks are guaranteed to fly--which is why the irresistible story of Julius Caesar and Cleopatra still enchants us. Handel's opera, starring Jennifer Larmore and Sylvia McNair as the ill-fated couple, abounds with dazzling vocal pyrotechnics as well as heart-rending drama. Stephanie Blythe (Cornelia) and David Daniels (her son Sesto) give memorable performances as the grieving family of the murdered Pompey. Brian Asawa sings Cleopatra's conniving brother Tolomeo

L'incoronazione di Poppea was Monteverdi's last opera, written when he was 75, and first performed in Venice in 1642.

La Calisto by Pier Francesco Cavalli( Visual )
7 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"When they dusted off this archetype of Venetian opera in 1993. Rene Jacobs and Herbert Wernicke probably had no idea that their recreation was destined for worldwide acclaim. But then La Calisto (1651) still has plenty to say to today's audiences: first of all because it shows the gods as falible, indeed lustful: and secondly, because it is served here by an absolute gem of a production, and by a musical realisation that manages to be both inventive and rigorous. Constantly mingling nobility and triviality, comedy and tragedy, this Calisto juxtaposes Monteverdian declamation and new-fangled aria as effortlessly as it juggles the divine and the earthly." -- Container

Agrippina by George Frideric Handel( Recording )
8 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Composed in 1709, Agrippina is an opera seria in three acts on a libretto by Cardinal Vincenzo Grimani. The opera tells the story of Agrippina, the mother of Nero, as she plots the downfall of the Roman Emperor Claudius and the installation of her son as emperor. Grimani's libretto, considered one of the best that Handel set, is full of topical political allusions. Some believe that it reflects the rivalry between Grimani and Pope Clement XI. Jacobs performs the work in its original version
